The physiological responses to either hemorrhage or sepsis have been well documented, however, their simultaneous delivery, as often seen in penetrating trauma, has not been extensively studied. A terminally-anesthetized porcine model of fixed-volume hemorrhage combined with intraperitoneal sepsis was developed. Large White pigs (45-60 kg) were bled 40% of blood volume and peritonitis was induced using an E. coil (O18:K1:H7) culture. Three groups of animals were sequentially studied. Group A (n = 8) received 10(8) bacteria, and Groups B (n = 4) and C (n = 5) received 10(10) organisms. All animals were maintained on a 2.5 mL/kg/h infusion of 0.9% saline. Group C was autotransfused at 1 h. Animals were monitored for up to 24 h. Cardiovascular features of hypovolemia were recorded in all animals. Animals in Group A improved clinically with little microbiological evidence of systemic sepsis. Group B showed rapid cardiovascular collapse, early E. coil-positive blood cultures, and an early rise in serum TNF-alpha levels. Autotransfusion of Group C significantly improved cardiopulmonary parameters, acid-base status, and survival. A reproducible model of hemorrhage and peritonitis, appropriate for abdominal trauma, which allows investigation of resuscitative and pharmacological interventions has been characterized.
